  • Think healthy food takes too long to cook? Think again!
  • Think healthy food is expensive? Think again!
  • Think healthy food is boring? Change your attitude and think again! Define boring to me please?

Here is the fastest meal in the West- all healthy, absolutely delicious and nutritious and the absolute beginner in the kitchen can’t even stuff this one up!

Organic Chicken and Spinach

Organic Spinach and Onions blanched, topped with Chicken Breast sauteed in Basil and Coconut Oil. Done deal.

Please explain to me how hard that is to make?! Faster than waiting in line at the fast food outlet, and will actually nourish your body with nutrients you need! You feel amazing after eating this, as opposed to heavy, bloated and lethargic.

Simple clean healthy meals- made in 10-15 minutes.

You Will Need:

  • 100-250 gm organic free range chicken ( or whatever meat you like)
  • Organic Spinach- you decide how much- there is never enough for me :)
  • Organic Onions
  • Basil – or whatever herbs you like to season with
  • Himalayan salt and pepper
  • Coconut oil

How To Make It Work:

  • Blanch the spinach and onions in water and your chosen herbs.
  • Saute your meat in coconut oil and your chosen herbs.
  • Voile- meal prepared. Takes all of 10-15 minutes.

Shop for your greens at your local farmers markets HERE for QLD; better still, hunt down your organic markets and outlets- HERE for BNE area. Buy what is in season as the price will be more competitive and we as humans are designed to eat the foods that are actually in season as opposed to demanding our favourite foods all year round; which is why genetic modification is developing at such an alarming rate.

If we choose healthier options for ourselves, our wallets will demand where the big money is invested. Keep your food seasonal, and enjoy the added health benefits that follow- ie higher immunity = less illness. You don’t need the flu shot!!!! Funny that I have never had the flu shot and … have I EVER had an actual flu? How about a cold??? I’m working with people in close proximity- if anyone is going to get sick- you would think it would be people like me… but no. I eat well- my food is my medicine. How about you?

Paprika Chicken on Spinach

I used Cayenne Pepper on my chicken in this one as Cayenne Peeper is said to increase metabolism. You dont need those ‘pre-work’ drinks- just eat the right foods :)

Use your spices and herbs to jazz up your meals. Include Himalayan salt- it is VERY good for you. Mix and match your spices. Grow your own herbs! Add them to every meal!! Prepare a meal like this the night before for your lunch at work- take an apple and an orange to have as a snack, and a couple of grissini sticks if you feel like it. Top up on green tea and water all day long. Get your body demanding alkaline, healthy, light meals! The more alkaline you become the more you crave healthy, live, light nutritious meals like these. Simple, easy, nutritious. That simple.

Be prepared. Plan your days and weeks. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail so exactly what is it you really want in life? Do you really want optimum health? Do you really want to live an abundant life? Do you really want to be lighter, physically, emotionally and Spiritually? The foods we eat make a remarkable impact on who we are and who we present to the world. If we really think about it, it becomes logical and clear. Our bodies are made up of cells, we are made up of bones, organs, blood…physical quantifiable measurable items. Such is the human body. We function on a bio-chemical level. Biology and chemistry together. Doesn’t it make logical sense, forgetting the emotional and spiritual aspect for the moment, that the fuel we put in this machine -our body – will determine how efficiently and effectively that machine works?

  • You wouldn’t put diesel in a Maserati would you?
  • Why would you put diesel in your body- your Maserati for life?

Why are we so amazed when our bodies finally start to fail when we continuously stuff them full with junk? And then even more amazed and disappointed when we change one day, one week, one month, out of our lives, expecting our bodies to return to optimum functionality over night?  In reality  our bodies are amazing, incredulous machines and NOONE has all the answers. Noone can figure them out.

YOU are your own best doctor because noone knows your body the way you do. You know what your body digests easily. You know what causes gas, indigestion, pain, tiredness…. You know what foods make you feel light and more alert. You also know how the foods you eat affect you mentally. If you eat foods and they cause pain in your body, tiredness, bloating…anything uncomfortable- it stands to reason that you dont feel so good about yourself, doesn’t it?

Most of us can take a moment and reflect on the reality of the situation and take ownership of our own bodies, minds and situations. Really we can. It may be confronting at first; perhaps humourous if you have a good sense of humour, perhaps enlightening. But if we all just took a step back and observed the truth of the situation, we could all take a lot more responsibility for our present scenario, which then gives us the power and confidence to actually do something about it. We dont always need to rush off to expensive doctors, ‘specialists’, ‘gurus’. Anyone calling themselves an expert or guru is banned from my world- all those so called ‘experts and gurus have FAILED big time over and over. I would suggest you do the same.. there are no such things as experts and gurus– we continually  learn and grow, grow and change. You are your own specialist. End of story.

If you want help in any area of your life, research and find people who are open, non-judgmental and not linked to any one company. Find people who understand that each person is different, and each person requires a different approach. We are not the same, none of us. One size has never fitted all!!

Start with making healthier nutritious choices in your food! And watch as your world turns inside out and upside down with good things! Great changes! Exciting changes- without tooo much effort. When you begin to see results, you get excited right?! Start with your food. Food is the sustenance we need to keep our bodies functioning at peak condition– so why do we abuse it so? Make that change! You can do it! I BELIEVE IN YOU!! That is a start :) xx

Poached Free Range Organic Chicken and Mango Salad

Gluten Free – Wheat Free – Bad Fat Free!!- 100% NATURAL!!!

Poached Free Range Chicken and Mango Salad

Whole Food – easy and fast, fast and easy!! Team- this couldn’t be easier if we tried to make it easier!!! Easy, nutritious, delicious, and GREAT for you!!! ALL GOOD!! Free from any nasties, bad cooking techniques and NO extra or hidden calories. Food HAS to taste spectacular or why bother eating it?

So many people say they don’t have time in the kitchen to cook healthy food.. well this takes all of …very little time so no excuses! This can be a great lunch or dinner option for the whole entire family, or just one person. I cook for one- its very easy to get it right – just portion out your meats before you freeze them. All you need to do is take your choice for dinner out of the freezer of the morning you plan to consume it. Your meat will be ready to cook when you get home from work and take the same amount of time you would have to wait in line for some disgusting fatty fast food.

I use free range organic chicken – you can get it from most supermarkets in Australia now; find a great butcher; or order it online- even better!! I poach my chicken which means I cook it in water with a little Himalayan salt, and add any seasoning I feel like. I use a lot of paprika. I like it hot. If you have a little BBQ- BBQ your chicken!! As Summer approaches fast- this is a fun option!!

The salad is self explanatory I hope – add your favourite alkalising greens, sprinkle with some other colours (veges) if you feel like it and add your mango diced. Some people don’t like fruit in salads, so for those of you who fall into this category.. just don’t add it!! I obviously do! Your kids could make this meal- it is so easy..in fact, why not get them to help you!! Too many children these days have no idea how to make basic foods. If they get involved, they might start to actually enjoy their greens!! Maybe 😉

If you like salad dressing- don’t buy the supermarket dressings!! Make your own from Olive Oil and Fresh Lemon Juice!! Fresh, zingy and alkalising. Season with Himalayan salt, pepper, fresh herbs and totally enjoy this refreshing Summer meal!!

This is a fast, delicious meal ready in no time.  Healthy, fast and gluten free is the name of the game! These burgers BBQed are even yummier and perfect for a Summers evening with the sun going down!
Add your favourite spices to the recipe for added flavour.
I use almond meal to coat the burgers to keep this gluten free and easily digestible.

Organic Turkey Burger (Gluten Free)

Ingredients:

  • 500g organic turkey chopped
  • 2 spring onions sliced
  • 2 Tblsns fresh parsely
  • 2 Tbslns rosemary
  • 1 tspn paprika
  • lemon
  • 1-2 eggs whites
  • 50g (1/2) C almond meal or rice crumbs.

In a food processor, combine turkey, spring onion, parsley, rosemary, zest from the lemon, Celtic salt and pepper, and paprika. Process to combine.
Remove and shape into 4 burgers, or more if you want them smaller bite size.
Coat lightly in almond meal and allow them to set in the fridge for 15 minutes.
In a fry pan , heat a small amount of coconut oil over a medium heat. Pan fry until golden brown- or brown all the way through.

Substitute any protein source for the turkey if you want. Salmon is delicious, but you can use any red meat, white meat, or meat substitute you prefer. They all work!
